There were 20 looks this season and they look damn good! Not too costumey and wearable pieces my favorite being the corduroy hooded pullover jacket, corduroy camel coat with red/blue pocket trim and the green wool reefer coat with the navy collar. The burgundy cord suit is also very cool and looks good with the red shirt and tie. A lot people don't notice how cool burgundy and fire red look together. The collection was inspired by the notion of urban utopia, maps, globes and architect Oscar Neimeyer's Brasilia. I'm not a fan of black because black is worn on a daily basis all over the city streets and I find it dull/boring but his looks in black are none of the above. That black wool overcoat pictured above is really special with a waist belt. The black map tie is pretty special too! No new footwear this season too (booooo) but I hope in the future they will do something for us. I featured a bunch of shirts from their new collection worth checking out and a closer look at that tie. Enjoy!


Yesterday was a busy day for me! I was up at the crack of dawn to try and solve these riddles that B.O.O. had for their Fall 2013 Men's Collection Scavenger Hunt that features their new collection. I solved the first three and was praised by Scott Sternberg (creative director, founder and designer of B.O.O.) himself as seen above. Yes eddieizzo is my Instagram name it's my nickname back home and it's a long story that we both don't have the time for. Then I jumped in the shower and headed downtown to find the truck to possibly win. I quickly changed my mind when I felt that 20 degree weather on my face so I decided to just buy the hat at a later date and just take pictures of the truck. I wore a complete Band outfit from head to toe (seen in pic above minus my camel/green horse scarf that I took off after the truck visit) but that is what I'm usually wearing mixed with a little J. Crew or Ralph Lauren predominantly. They appreciated my outfit as you can see in pic 3 all eyes were on me and the models felt unappreciated for a second but it felt longer to me. Now I have the picture forever to treasure. They were supposedly parked along Battery Park but when I got there no truck. I had to go on the live stream and pick a landmark that they were parked in front of and the Puma store it was. I then googled Puma stores in NYC which one was located in Union Square and I followed my gut. Fate has it and I find the truck yay! I'm also in the video taping which I later watched when I got home and saw the staff tapping Scott to check out my ensemble stating "Nice" and "I like that". My pic from the video is also above I'm standing against the storefront to the right. Fun times!

Just got this bad boy in time for Christmas all the way from the UK! It is a B.O.O Camel Coat that was sold at Barneys last year for $2290. I found it on Ebay of course because it isn't available anywhere else. I'm not sure if it is made of camel hair or cashmere because it feels like cashmere and I brought it to my tailor and he told me cashmere. Whatever it is all I know that this is the best coat that I've ever owned quality-wise and I have an extensive coat collection from the best of the best including Burberry. This is why I can't say no to B.O.O!!!

Here is a little sneak peak into what is in store for the new Spring 2013 Collection and I likes! I just hope that B.O.O gets there online store up and running again with exclusive pieces that other stores don't carry. I also hope that there is a plan for new footwear as well. Hopefully made in the US or Italy like their clothing. I want that Polo and shorts so I can rock them together!

I am sad to say that the Band of Outsiders Sperry Topsider collaboration is officially discontinued after 5 seasons. I got the official word from Sperry Topsider themselves but if you haven't noticed there wasn't any Fall/Winter releases recently so treasure the ones that you do have. Hopefully BOO has something up their sleeves for next season I guess we have to wait for February to find out (@ NYFW)!
